Validated test results are necessary to quantify benefits and measure success. At Conflux, testing of our AM solutions is critical to ensure the quality and repeatability of the parts produced in addition to the functional performance outcomes.
We apply a variety of testing methods at key stages in our development process. Validation testing is carried out in order to take a concept through to functional prototype level. For independent validation we use certified, external test laboratories.
The standards and certification requirements of every industry we work in are unique. For us, this can mean that acceptance criteria differ from project to project. We tackle this by developing testing and validation programs tailored to your particular problem space that ensure overall aims and requirements are addressed.
At Conflux, the validity of our work is always at the forefront of our minds. We address this right at the conceptualisation stage of projects, taking care to consider factors such as powder removal and end use performance right from the outset.
This mentality follows all the way through to final performance testing. We often perform pressure/leak testing and CT scanning during the intermediate stages of projects to inform and direct the development.
By carefully considering testing and validation at each stage of the project, we’re able to avoid compromise to project deliverables and ensure that we are always delivering on time and to brief.

Our testing and validation capabilities fall into different categories and are performed internally and externally.

We offer our clients a variety of services, from focused end-to-end project management, research and development programs and customised application design.
We run benchmarking of existing solutions, design, simulation and optimisation and prototype build, and testing as well as series production.
